 * Exhibition
This is just a regular game for fun. You could change the period length, skill 
level, penalties, and a lot of other stuff. This is a good place to practice in 
a real game. Start off on novice difficulty if you can't take the heat and when 
you're really good, you should try out expert mode.
                                                                               
 * Season
This is where you could play all 82 beautiful games of the 1997-1998 season. 
Play every game one by one as whatever team(s) you want to or simulate them. 
It's up to you! This is also where you could try trading players around to try 
to make the ultimate team!
                                                                               
 * Practice
This is where you really want to start out. You could try any situation and see 
how you do. If you have troubles on the penalty kill, set your team with four 
players and the other with five and keep playing. You could try out just about 
any situation here or take a true challenge by playing one on two, or even 
three.
                                                                               
 * Skill Challenge
Want to have quick fun? Well this is the best place to go. You could try the 
real skill challenges they play at the all-star game. You could just do this to 
kill a few minutes or have a quick competition with friends.
                                                                               
 * Shoot Out
Ahh, the famous shoot out. Play the one-on-one game where the only thing 
blocking you from a goal is the opposing goalie. But you'll have to stop the 
next shot the other team makes yourself!

                        ===============================
                        ------------Offense------------
                        ===============================
                                                                               
 * Face-Off:
The face-off is very important. It could give you the winning edge early. Don't 
just mash the buttons at the face-off because that's not how you win. Look at 
the ref and press the pass button as fast as you can once he drops the puck. 
You could then work off from the face-off and try to score.
                                                                               
 * Passing:
We'll start off with the most imporant part of passing. You won't win games 
unless you pass. You might as well be the only one on the ice if you don't want 
to pass. Look for the open player. The only thing is, don't look just for an 
open passing lane. Think ahead, look for somebody who will be able to skate 
ahead with clear ice ahead of them. Only when you are right in front of the 
net, should you only look for an open passing lane.
                                                                               
 * Shooting:
Now we'll go on with what you need to do to win. You'll never win if you just 
shoot whenever, unless you're just that lucky. You have to think of good 
scoring strategies. The best strategy always has been and always will be, the 
one-timer. This is where passing also comes in handy. Pass to somebody on the 
other side of the net and immediately shoot. If you execute this play quickly, 
you should score because the goalie shouldn't get to the other side in time. 
You could also try the wrap-around. This is when you wrap around the net and to 
the other side, then you quickly shoot it. This doesn't work as well but it 
still works pretty well. Another strategy is to take a shot from the side 
board, by the two circles. The last best strategy to use, is to come in from an 
angle. Stop and cut to the side of the goalie, then quickly shoot.
                                                                               
 * The Neutral Zone:
The neutral zone is the area in between the two blue lines. Sometimes it may be 
difficult to get into the opposing zone. You may be able to skate in, but they 
may also just stay at the line and not let anybody through. So you may want to 
try to either pass or dump the puck into the zone. The only problem with 
dumping the puck into the zone, is that they could easily beat you to the puck. 
That's why you have to be quick or check them right away.
                                                                               
 * Breakaways:
The breakaway will always be your greatest oppurtunity to score. It's when you 
get past the five players on the other team and is fairly rare. All you have to 
beat is the goalie. Try what I explained in the Shooting section. Try to go in 
from an angle and cut to the other side. Just make sure you don't shoot with 
the backhand because it's much slower and the goalie has a better chance at 
blocking it.
                                                                               
 * Two on One Breaks:
This is very rare but very helpful. The easiest way to get these are when you 
have two people on your own team. Other than the goalie, you two forwards will 
only have one defenseman to stop you. You could either pass for a one-timer, or 
you could go in and shoot yourself. The best thing to do is to pass to the 
other player, and quickly pass back. That way the goalie will already be off to 
the other side.
                                                                               
                        ===============================

                        ===============================
                                                                               
 * Checking:
Stopping their offense, especially in the neutral zone, is your best chance. 
Don't even let them get a shot in on net. Just check them right away. Keep 
practicing until you learn how to time all of your checks perfectly. To 
practice, go into practice and put five players on your team, with one on 
theirs. Just keep going for checks and dump the puck every time you get it.
                                                                               
 * Penalty Kills:
Penalty Kills are when one player has a penalty and the other team has one more 
player than you. Your best strategy is to just waste time. You won't get icing 
when you're on the penalty kill. Just skate around to waste time and whenever 
you don't want them getting the puck, just dump it to the opposing zone.
                                                                               
                        ==============================
                        ---------Basic  Rules---------
                        ==============================
                                                                               
 * Icing:
If you shoot the puck from behind the center line (red) and it goes behind 
their goal line (behind their net,) they could touch it. The puck will 
automatically be sent to your end and you will have to make a face-off there.
                                                                               
 * Offsides:
You have to have all players behind the blue line before you could bring the 
puck over it. If you do pass it, you will just have to make a face-off from the 
blue line.
                                                                               
 * Two Line Pass:
You can't pass over two lines. If you do, you'll have to make a face-off.
                                                                               
 * Penalties:
Sometimes you will get penalties but there's really nothing you could do about 
it, just check less.
